Stress Management – Music Monday

This week is the first week of AP exams for many high school students in the US. The pressure can be a little overwhelming and the stress takes a major toll on students everywhere. Since both of us have AP exams this week, Carina and I have decided to make the theme of this week Stress Management. Stress is faced by everyone at some point in their lives, so we decided to give our readers some helpful hints to help them through! This week we will be posting some tips to help you manage your stress and anxiety during this stressful time. Managing stress is an important part of your health. You could be doing all the right things, exercising, eating right, and getting enough sleep, but mismanaged stress can really take a toll on your body. Today we will be talking all about music. Music is a great way to alter your mood. It allows you to kick back and relax. I’ve put together a list of ten songs for relaxation. I hope you get a chance to google some of these amazing artists since many of their albums are great stand-alone destressers! So look them up, get into your bathtub or your cozy chair and feel the stress melt away!
Also, if you’re looking for a relaxing bath stop by Jolie Tea in Hamilton and get their bath teas with relaxing scents to destress. Or check out Lush and Whole Foods to bubble bath or bath salts.

Introduction

Welcome to our blog dedicated to educating young women on health and fitness. Our names are Carina Klyachman and Kristina Li. We are high school seniors currently interning at Get In Shape for Women in Danvers, MA. The Get In Shape for Women studio seeks to create a fitness program exclusively for women. The studio uses accountability and measuring to ensure results for their clients. The philosophy at Get In Shape for Women is that you can not improve what you do not measure. Therefore, the clients are consistently measured by weight, change in muscle mass versus fat mass, and loss of inches. These measurements help show that their goals are being reached and shows the great effect of the studio. Get In Shape combines cardio, weight training, and diet tips to help women get and stay in shape. Clients work with personal trainers to follow their goals and to make sure that they have an exercise program that is exclusive to their objective.
The studio will provide as a teaching platform for us. There, we will learn valuable information about wellness so we can share it with our readers. Information we learn at the studio will be incorporated with research to create valuable blog posts that educate our readers. We will thoroughly research our information and share the sources in order to guarantee accuracy.
On this site, we will be regularly posting healthy recipe ideas, dietary and lifestyle tips, dietary trends, fitness class reviews, and more. These posts will range from nutrition to workouts. They may include information on comparing diets, learning about healthy foods you may have not tried before, or doing various workouts. These posts will go in depth about all of the topics listed above. We also hope to share interviews with the clients on how this studio has changed the way look at wellness and how the studio has helped them to reach their fitness goals.
We decided to create this blog because of our mutual interest in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It’s important to create healthy habits and enforce them early on so that they may continue throughout your life. We believe that health is more than just the number that reads on the scale. Our blog will focus more nutrition, physical fitness and mental wellness as opposed to just discussing weight loss. We seek to enhance your knowledge on a popular topic and help you to make healthier and wiser choices to create great habits that ensure a long and healthy future. Over the next four weeks of our internship, we hope you will follow along with us as we explore various topics relating to wellness!
